    What if you grow most your neps in pure LFS anyway? Could I just put it in a pot of LFS? I've tried using LFS and pure perlite. What should I do as far as temp and humidty? And do cuttings like alot of light?

    From what I've read, good light, but not direct intense light. High humidity and good air circulation are important, too. I just mentioned my soil composition because a lot of people repot when there is a good root ball, but I'm not planning on doing that. Just personal preference I suppose.

    Hey you got the same temp. gauge as me.

    Would good but not direct light be like placing a cutting in the corner of your terrarium?

    I place my cuttings in a mix of peat, sphagnum moss and clay chips. I keep them in a little wardian case which maintains the humidity very high. I also make sure that they don't get direct sunlight so they don't wilt, and I also spray them with some fungicide to prevent fungus overgrowth. Other than that, don't fiddle with the cuttings too much, as they don't like being bothered.

    I have mine directly under my lights. I meant not direct sunlight.

    I have that gauge too. Says humidity is much higher than it really is. I put it in a different part of my house and the next day, it was reading 53%. Nonsense!
